A FedEx Driver in Jackson, Mississippi Was Killed & His Family Is Offering a $20,000 Award for Information
FedEx driver Robert Williams was shot and killed in his delivery truck in Jackson, Mississippi in August, where he was waiting outside a friend’s house, according to WLBT. He was a 39-year-old father of nine, WLBT reported. His wife, Tierra Williams, told the news outlet she is fearful for her life and the lives of her children because the killer remains on the loose.
“I’m having to pick up, move, relocate my children and just find us somewhere safer to live,” she told WLBT.
She said the death came as a shock. Her husband had just finished mowing the lawn and told her he would be back shortly. Instead, she said, a neighbor appeared at the door and told her about the shooting, she told the news outlet.
Williams said her husband had no enemies and she could not imagine why anyone would want to kill him, according to WLBT.
“My husband had no enemies. He had a big heart,” she said, according to the news outlet. “Everyone loved him. So I don’t understand what would make a person want to murder somebody. They didn’t even know him.”
